Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
LORD Jesus, we praise You for You have made us and You are the One who knows exactly what we need. Thank You for providing so richly for us. Enable us, O God we pray, to be grateful and to submit to Your perfect Will in our life. Help us to bow down and to worship You alone. Let us come before You, to love You and adore You, to taste and to see that You alone are good. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.
At the beginning of May, in my post Getting Into the Habit, I shared something a politician had said shortly before Ireland went into lockdown. He suggested for us to sow some seeds and to grow our own salad.
A few years back I had already decided that growing salads and vegetables wasn’t for me. That was mainly due to our newly built greenhouse being torn apart by a storm. I had given up my dream of self-sufficient gardening.
On May the 23rd, in my post called Lessons from the Garden — Leave it in God’s Hands, I mentioned the greenhouse which my hubby had built for me from scratch. No, it’s not one you would find in a catalog or garden centre. Instead, he just used a variety of materials — what had been available at the time — and turned it into a custom-built greenhouse. It might have cost me some worries at the beginning but now I’m so grateful for it.
These are just some of the vegetables God has blessed us with this year. Day by day I keep going back into our greenhouse to harvest. I often just stand there and look at the amazing increase that God is continually providing for us — and for us to share with others.
The blessing lies not only in the amount of the vegetables we harvest, though; it’s also much about the flavor of them. Once you have tasted natural home-grown fruits and vegetables you never want to go back to eating unnatural forced berries, salads, beans, peas, tomatoes, or any other garden produce. It just won’t taste right.
Do we hunger for the nutritious Bread of Heaven? Or are we feeding on artificial food instead of on the Word of God?
Trust in the LORD! Taste and see that God is good!
